The RedTail LiDAR System is the perfect solution for wetland 3D scanning and high-resolution imaging.

The power of LiDAR imaging for wetland management is the creation of point clouds that can be analyzed in a diverse number of ways. Data collected in a wetland environment can be used to: 1) measure vegetation height and assess the health of the environment, 2) measure land volume to assess erosion of surrounding areas which can adversely affect the ecology of the wetland, 3) identify changes to the hydrology brought on by natural or manmade alterations to the flow of water through the wetland, and 4) assist in the delineation between wetland and upland forest areas. In addition, digital elevation models (DEMs) can be used for vegetation differentiation, and digital surface models (DSMs) provide a useful metric for vegetation classification. 

The RedTail LiDAR is the optimal solution for wetland imaging. With a pulse repetition rate of up to 400,000 pulses per second, even point distribution on the ground, superior ranging capability and optimized scan angles, the RedTail LiDAR System simplifies even the most difficult of wetland 3D mapping missions.

High-Resolution Point Cloud

The RedTail LiDAR System –
incorporating LiDAR technology licensed from the U.S. Army Research Laboratory – is designed to provide high-resolution imaging from multicopters, hybrid, and fixed-wing UAVs.

Infrastructure

RedTail UAV LiDAR Infrastructure Mapping Application

Designed specifically for small unmanned aerial vehicles, the RedTail LiDAR System is a superior point cloud generation tool that can help you survey, map, analyze and monitor all of your infrastructure projects.

​The RedTail LiDAR System quickly creates high resolution point clouds which can be imported directly into mapping, design, and engineering software solutions, allowing you to assess and complete your infrastructure projects more effectively.

​From power lines and pipelines, to railways and roadways, data collected with the RedTail LiDAR System can be used to:

  • create detailed topographic maps
  • perform boundary surveys
  • inspect and monitor conditions of existing infrastructure
  • collect accurate position information of wires, structures, vegetation and terrain
  • improve maintenance planning and scheduling for screws and equipment
  • monitor vegetation and terrain changes around power lines and pipelines
  • monitor environmental conditions before and after an infrastructure development project
  • evaluate how new structures will integrate into an existing landscape

The RedTail LiDAR System is the optimal solution for your infrastructure surveying, mapping, inspecting, analyzing, and monitoring needs.

Construction
